    Thanks, 2 pair of eyes on the back, nothing up front. If needed, I could add this rack to the axle and canti bosses;

    What tires on the 3 wheelsets? If you had to narrow it to one tire, which one?

    This worked great for me, nothing else needed and never a dropped chain.

    This bike would turn out nicely. I built a 1984ish 400 with a 10-speed 12-25 cassette and a 46 & 39 crankset that I had on hand. It was a great all-around bike.

    I think I already own it, if you allow modern bikes. If a vintage bike is needed, my Peugeot PX10 will fit the description. It will get 700x32 Compass Stampeded Pass tires and a 3x7 drivetrain while...

    Yes, I'm tempted by those rims, also. If I only met the weight recommendation.

    Use the Velodrome in Northbrook. It's usually open to the public.

    Northbrook Park District - Ed Rudolph Velodrome

    It's pleasant ride from Evanston.

    Tan sidewalls are needed, IMO. Adding tan cable guides, grips and a saddle would complete the look. All black is to severe on a vintage bike.

    Actually, this group is becoming hard to find. Having a spare is a good plan.

    Expand your search to include rigid mountain bikes. This thread has many good examples: http://www.bikeforums.net/classic-vintage/828426-show-your-vintage-mtb-drop-bar-conversions.html

    Except a used wheel rim is, um..., used.

    Used rims are going to be damaged, unless the bike was a garage queen with zero miles.

    If a new rim is bent (which has never happened to me), the new rim gets returned to the supplier before the wheel is built. No magic involved.

    Hi Dave,

    I've actually had good luck with new pre-built wheels. I have about 20,000 of miles on multiple wheelsets and all of them have been flawless. Every used wheelset I've used has been trued...

    I actually have a set of CR18. I do like them for bikes that are used for regular rides or touring and commuting. They are not the best match for a go-fast bike.

    I'm probably going to use 130mm Shimano 600 hubs on this build.

    This is what I have available using my hubs and the Sapim spokes;

    Shimano 600 tri-color hubs: (sunk cost)

    Sapim spokes: $30.00

    Sun CR18: $60 pair

    Labor: $80.00

    This is what I decided this summer when I replaced the vintage Shimano 600/Mavic Open Pro wheelset on my Serotta with a modern 105/Open Pro wheelset. The 105 hubs are uninspired, but the wheelset is...

    I certainly would be willing to pay $200 for a complete set of wheels, using my hubs and a new set of the A23 rims or something of the same quality. But $400 for a finished wheelset using my hubs is...

    I think what's bothering me is the cost of materials. I'm suspicious of lower priced spokes and offended by the price of top quality spokes.
